NORMAN, Okla.- It’s a stressful time of year for many college students across the state, finals week.
Finding ways to relax can be tough but at the University of Oklahoma, there’s a unique way to blow off steam right inside the Bizzell Memorial Library.
Organizers say they have incorporated Sparq Labyrinth mediation into their activities.
Matt Cook, the creator of the class, said, “Walk slowly to the center and take a deep breath.”
There are six labyrinth patterns to choose from, each representing different cultures, including medieval Europe, Celtic, ancient India and Native American.
The goal is to give students other ways to use their downtime, rather than turning to Facebook and other social media sites.
Cook said, “What can you do to get people away from their computer and give them a body activity?”
